A$AP Ferg‘s Mad Man tour had Dallas in a buzz Friday night on March 9. Maryland-based artist IDK opened the show. His hyped up the crowd with songs like “Pizza Shop” and “17 Wit a 38”. IDK played around with the crowd, having the sides of the room chant his name and try to out-cheer the other. He left the crowd momentarily only to come back during Denzel Curry’s set to spit his verse on “No Wave”.

Denzel Curry made the room practically glow with energy after IDK’s set.Often characterized by skipping around the stage and Dragon Ball Z-esque power stances in between songs, Denzel Curry possesses an unrivaled energy and stage presence. The Carol City native always brings lots of fun into his performance. During thisFriday night performance, he did a wall of death to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. He also performed a new song off of his upcoming album, a track name was not given.

A$AP definitely kept us waiting, but his set was well worth the wait. Donning an all white tracksuit, A$AP Ferg looked like someone out of the future when he walked onstage. A$AP’s performance had a different tone than IDK and Denzel Curry’s, it was more tenacious and powerful, less playful and fun.
